Rightside Brewing is partnering with Big Kettle Brewing, a contract brewer in Lawrenceville, to brew and package a Citrus Wheat and an IPA for the Southeast market starting this October. Billed as the first non-alcoholic beer brewed in Georgia, the products will be available in bars, restaurants and retailers throughout the Southeast, with no current plans to open a dedicated brewery or taproom.
The company is the brainchild of Emree Woods, who has experience in the beverage and startup industries. She came up with the idea for Rightside when she was pregnant and realized there were limited options for adults who choose not to drink alcohol. She wanted to create a beer that was “a quality product that was similar to its alcoholic counterpart, but also removed the stigma of traditional non-alcoholic beers,” according to a press release.
